Sekurytyzacja polskiej polityki migracyjnej a sytuacja przygranicznych regionów Polski Wschodniej
The Situation in the Regions at the Polish Eastern Border in the Context of the Securitisation of Polish Migration Policy
Languages of publication
The development of migration policies, as well as the processes of tying them to the questions of security (which have been going on in Western Europe since the mid-1970s) has already been extensively analyzed by many scholars. However, so far the focus has only been on the European and national levels of analysis. This paper takes on a different perspective on the matter, arguing that the process of securitization of migration takes place on a number of levels. The regulations set up at the European level and subsequently introduced into the legal systems of particular EU Member States undergo many modifications before being implemented in the regional and local dimension. This leads to the question about the role of the regional level in the process of the securitization of migration. This paper analyses this question using the example of the Subcarpathian Voivodship, a region at the Polish-Ukrainian border.
